Indian student's body

The body of Nitin Garg, the Indian student who was stabbed to death in the Australian city of Melbourne last week, will be flown back on Saturday afternoon.

His body is expected to arrive via Dubai in an Emirates Flight, official sources told IANS. The body will be handed over to his brother and taken to Punjab by road, they said.

Garg, 21, an accounting graduate, was knifed in West Footscray suburb of Melbourne while on his way to work last Saturday. He staggered to Hungry Jack's restaurant -- where he worked -- and pleaded for help before collapsing.

He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he died. Garg hailed from Punjab.

The ministry of external affairs has assured the family of the deceased financial aid and the Australian authorities have said catching the killers is a "high priority" for them.
